Ignitor works but oven does not GE xl44 gas

I have a similar problem. My burners work, the ignitor glows red, the oven does not warm at all. Worked great the night before when I made cookies, worked great in morning when husband used it, then went to make pizza for dinner and NADA!

I cannot find my manual anywhere and I thought I saved them all in the same box. Have everything but. I need help as I have company coming Friday for a week and cannot cook. Any suggestions greatly appreciated including where I can find a manual online.
Thnk ou.

    hello - I have the same problem, however when my oven igniter quit glowing, I swapped with the broiler and my oven igniter worked on the broiler and my broiler igniter did not work on my oven. So I must have another problem. Can anyone help please?

Just because the igniter glows red, does not mean it is working properly. They wear with age and can become weak. This can prevent the oven from lighting. If you follow the link I provided below, it will explain how to determine if the iginiter is bad and how to replace it.

    mcqb,



    Sorry for getting back to you so late...What is the model number of your range? You have it listed under the "GE Spectra" heading, but identified it as a "GE X144". I need a more complete model number to research the information you are asking for. Please look around the oven door opening or lower drawer opening for a nameplate with model number. Some ranges will have this information on the back of the range. For quicker responses, you can go to my profile and use the "Ask Me" button.

I have a GE Kitchen range XL44, stove top burners work fine, but oven won't light??? HELP please


Unplug the range.
Remove the oven racks.
remove the oven base pan.
remove the flame spreader pan.
remove the glow bar ignitor on the left hand side of the gas burner and replace it with a good ignitor.

Used the oven on Sunday night - on Monday it wouldn't work!


Check to see if the ignitor is coming on, you will see a bright orange glow in the burner area when you turn it on. If you don't, your ignitor is burned out. It is a fairly inexpensive item and fairly easy for the do it yourselfer. Just remember to unplug your oven before you replace the ignitor.

Most likely the oven ignitor is bad or weak.  You can look at it and see how it compares to the broil ignitor.  If you see a whitish color on the ignitor and if it doesn't fully glow then it needs to be replaced.
